Interest Rate in Bulgaria
Bulgaria - Interest RateThe economy likely lost some momentum in the second quarter, after the external sector more than offset a cooling domestic economy to propel an acceleration in Q1. The slowdown in domestic demand seemingly intensified: Industrial production performed poorly in April-May, which, coupled with less upbeat business confidence and softer credit growth in Q2, points to a moderation in private sector activity. As for households, despite the unemployment rate dropping consecutively in the first two months of the quarter, meager retail sales and downbeat consumer sentiment indicate subdued household spending. On the flip side, the external sector showed further signs of vitality, with merchandise exports growing notably in April-May. Meanwhile, on the fiscal front, the parliament approved funding for the purchase of eight U.S. F-16 fighter aircrafts in mid-July, and increased the expected fiscal-deficit-to-GDP ratio to 2.1% for 2019.
